Des Moines, Dubuque and... Shreveport?

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Most of the major presidential candidates, Democratic and Republican, are spending the closing days of this year-long battle for the White House in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Today, Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, Bill Richardson, and Joe Biden are all in the Hawkeye State. Mitt Romney, and Hillary Clinton are in New Hampshire.

Then there's John McCain, who is stumping in Louisiana - where voters don’t weigh in until after Super Tuesday - and his home state of Arizona.

Back in a more traditional campaign mecca, the GOP candidates have successfully courted most of the big-name Palmetto State endorsers. But one of the biggest remains unspoken for.

With just a month to go until Palmetto State Republicans head to the polls – and five primary candidates pulling double-digit support in most recent surveys – “Could an eleventh hour endorsement for president by Mark Sanford, the state's Republican governor, put a GOP hopeful over the top?” Click here for the full story.

    Don't these people ever sleep?

    No wonder they're all beginning to look like death warmed over and babbling on & on like a bunch of dead heads!!

    Iowa, NH, SC, and the rest of these United States need to go back to the drawing board and move their primary dates later again. The folks in the early-bird states are sick & tired of the swarm of candidates knocking on their doors and calling at all hours of the day, especially over the holidays – when we'd much rather be spending pleasant time with our friends and families.

    Whose bright idea was it to move Iowa to Jan 3 and NH to the 5th anyway?? Must have had "a heckofa New Year's Eve hangover" when they came up with that nobrainer 🙁

    I am HOPING reason wins the day finally in this country and if the Democratic choice is Hillary those in our country realize another of George Bush's ilk like a Romney will RUIN us. Hillary is brilliant and is not the flip flopper in chief that a Romney is and would be. It strains credulity after the infinite Republican scandals, the unnecessary loss of 4000 of our men and women in a trumped up war, and the squandering of so much of our cash that anyone would even think once about voting Republican. They are the sleaziest of the sleaze. Democrats aren't perfect but holy cow they are yards more of an improvement over the Republican legacy of a George W. Bush. We MUST take back our country. Vote brilliance for once, vote Hillary Clinton!
